Jeon So Mi talked about all the things she went through to borrow a cell phone.


Most of the time, idols are not allowed cell phones until they've gained some ground on the music scene, such as winning #1 on a music show. During the filming of 'Idol Drama Operation Team', Jeon So Mi talked about some of the things she did to get her hands on one to contact her family.

She revealed that she'd even tore the screen on her window down to borrow a phone from the outside. Once, when she met fans, she gave them food in exchange for using their cell phone for a moment. She said, "I managed to get to my mother, but we had filming right afterward, and I only heard her voice for a little bit."








What do you think about the strict no cell phone policy that idols have to follow?

    How Korean parents allow some manager total control over access to their own child is beyond comprehension. This kind of control over the lives of children (especially female kids being controlled by much older male managers) would never fly anywhere else. But rape and child molesting is not considered a serious crime in Korea, so I suppose this kind of control is tolerated there.

    some groups have access to a common cell that's held by their manager, who usually also lives with the group in the dorm. Others do have a landline, and yet others simply have their own phone. Somi's situation is actually quite extraordinary. In a way, not being allowed to communicate like that is a form of abduction, which obviously is a severe crime.

    That's ridiculous... I feel so bad for them. They should at least allow them to call their parents or family

    thats hella stupid, what if theres an emergency or something, a bunch young girls living in a dorm by themselves and no cells or landline…?? No wonder the company that managed IOI was criticized so much

    Maybe Somi is overreacting, we all know that they could borrow cellphones with their managers to make a call when their not doing anything specially when they want to talk with their parents.

    Ya ! But again I don't consider having a cell phone is committing big sin. So mi is still a kid and she needs to call her parents when she misses them.

    I'm not surprised the illiterate wangker sejung can't comprehend anything at all. I mean, what do we expect from an IQ of only 10 right?
